>Snakebabs anyone?

>I have just finished sifting the still hot ash from yesterday and while I draw the line at photographing the evidence, suffice it to say that I now know what char broiled snake looks like.

What I found hardest to believe was that the silly bugger poked his head out of the bonfire when it got a bit hot and chose to go back in. Immolation wouldn’t be my choice of the ideal way to go.

    >Perhaps it’s the old story of how to boil a frog. Put him in a pan of cold water and turn up the heat. Being cold blooded he will adapt until he can adapt no longer. Snakes are cold blooded too – which also describes what they do to my blood should I see one!! LOL

    >Susan – a very reliable method of attracting a snake that’s gone ‘missing’ is to put out a saucer of milk. My mother would never rest if she saw a snake anywhere near the house on the farm and the saucer of milk always did the trick.Richard was also told of this method by the kids at one of his rural schools – they swore by it – and it had been used frequently as they were in a very snake infested area on the banks of a river in central Victoria.
